"We developed this mid-summer salad to use an overabundance of fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, and celery. This recipe makes more dressing than you need for the salad, but it will keep almost forever in the refrigerator." — Tom and Agnes

buttermilk salad dressing and seasoning mix
1 1/3 cups
cucumbers, quartered and thinly sliced
onion, sliced and quartered
We grow a garden every summer and can't wait to try this with fresh veggies.It's a definite keeper.
Oh no! Don't know what happened but this did NOT work. Are you sure that it is 1/3 cup of water to simmer the dill seed in? The water kept evaporating in the pan before the seeds had simmered for 10 minutes. Then I added the honey and dry buttermilk mix and ended up with globs of honey/seed/seasoning that would NOT whisk into the rest of the dressing mixture. UGH - this after I made a special trip to the grocery for dill SEED vs. dill WEED.
I used skim milk in place of buttlermilk. And dill weed instead of running to the store for dill seed. My 9 yr old can't get enough of these cucumbers...and she puts them on her salad!!
This was the perfect compliment to our summer BBQ meal. It had a mild lovely flavor that calmed spicy sausages really nicely. Everyone loved it. I didn't read it clearly and forgot the mayo, so I used a bottle of light buttermilk ranch dressing with the honey and the dill and it came out fantastic. Thanks for the great recipe!
Try using a bit more water (1/3-1/2 cup) and put a lid on the small pot while it simmers. Will keep most of the liquid, and flavor, that way. Let it cool sightly before adding the remaining ingredients.
I tried this recipe and after the first bite I took I couldn't wait to take more.
I tried this recipe for supper one night it was sooooooooooo good!!!!!!!
luv2cook is right- the water with dill seed evaporated and maybe scorched it. My husband thought I put Caraway seed in the dressing. It is a great combination of summer veggies...just need a different dressing.
